XF 1.5 How to color subforums?

I added this code into extra.css

.node .subForumList {
background: #87CEFA;

But it does not change the color of text

Anyway to change it?

Thanks =)

Ah, okay. Now it's clear what you want.

You don't need !important, then, if the background changed without it. Add color to your code.

.node .subForumList {
    color: red;
    background-color: blue;
It doesn't really matter if color is before or after background-color, it just makes sense to me to do it that way since that's the order in the style properties.
